OBJECTIVES: The aim of this paper is to examine cavity design for posterior resin composite restorations and to discuss various resin composite filling techniques. DATA: Literature with regard to cavity preparation for amalgam and resin composite restorations has been reviewed. An overview of available bulkfill resin composite systems is provided and a categorization of these systems according to their clinical application and their intended use is outlined. SOURCES: A literature search was carried out by the authors in Medline...

OBJECTIVE: An increment layering technique in a thickness of 2mm or less has been the standard to sufficiently convert (co)monomers. Bulk fill resin composites were developed to accelerate the restoration process by enabling up to 4mm thick increments to be cured in a single step. The aim of the present study is to investigate the effect of layer thickness on the elution of components from bulk fill composites. METHODS: The composites ELS Bulk fill, SDR Bulk fill and Venus Bulkfill were polymerized according to the instruction of the manufacturers...

AIM: To determine and compare the fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth restored with a bulk fill flowable material (SDR) and a traditional resin composite. METHODS: Thirty maxillary and 30 mandibular first molars were selected based on similar dimensions. After cleaning, shaping and filling of the root canals and adhesive procedures, specimens were assigned to 3 subgroups for each tooth type (n=10): Group A: control group, including intact teeth; Group B: access cavities were restored with a traditional resin composite (EsthetX; Dentsply-Italy, Rome, Italy); Group C: access cavities were restored with a bulk fill flowable composite (SDR; Dentsply-Italy), except 1...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the 3-year clinical durability of the flowable bulk-fill resin composite SDR in Class I and Class II restorations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-eight pairs of Class I and 62 pairs of Class II restorations were placed in 44 male and 42 female patients (mean age 52.4 years). Each patient received at least two extended Class I or Class II restorations that were as similar as possible. In all cavities, a one-step self-etching adhesive (XenoV+) was applied...

OBJECTIVES: The aim was to evaluate the polymerization properties of bulk-fill resin composites using two different light-curing protocols, in terms of degree of conversion (%DC), Vickers hardness (HV), polymerization volume shrinkage (PVS) and polymerization shrinkage stress (PSS) and compare them to conventional condensable and flowable resin composites. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Filtek BulkFill (FBF, 3MESPE, Germany), SDR (Dentsply, Germany), TetricEvoCeram BulkFill (TBF, Ivoclar-Vivadent, Liechtenstein), Venus BulkFill (VBF, Heraeus, Germany), X-traBase (XTB, Voco, Germany), FiltekZ250 (3MESPE) and Filtek Supreme XTE Flowable (FSF, 3MESPE) were investigated...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the marginal adaptation of bulk-fill composites in class II MO cavities. METHODS: Standardized class II MO cavities with bevelled enamel margins were prepared in 40 extracted human molars. The teeth were randomly assigned to one of the five experimental groups (n=8). The teeth were restored with two horizontal increments of composite (4mm and 2mm thickness). The experimental groups were (1st/2nd increment): Gr. A - Venus Bulk-Fill/Venus Diamond; Gr...

The present study assessed the polymerization shrinkage stress kinetics of five low-shrinkage light-cured bulk-fill resin composites: Surefil SDR flow (SF, Dentsply), Tetric EvoCeram Bulkfil (TE, Ivoclar Vivadent), Venus Bulk Fill (VB, Heraeus Kulzer), x-tra fil (XF, Voco), and experimental bulk fill (FB, 3M ESPE). Filtek Z250 (FZ, 3M ESPE) was used as a control. Real-time shrinkage stress of investigated composites was measured using a tensometer; maximum shrinkage stress, stress rate (Rmax), and time to reach maximum stress rate (tmax) were recorded...
